Body, body, visceral,
Flesh until hitting bone
Body, body, visceral,
Flesh until hitting bone
Body, body, corporeal
Imagination until lost in the astral
Body, body corporeal
Imagination until lost in the astral

The blood screaming in my veins from ancestors
Those, lived bodies
Came from the ground soil
The tint of the soil is imprinted in our skin
Soil, reflecting mirror, soil
Soil, reflecting mirror, soil
Soil, container of richness, while dances with the sun,
Life unkept in the underground for it’s bound to expand
Melanin,
Melanin lives
Feet on the ground hearing trees
Feet on the ground eating from the bushes
Feet on the ground, flora germinating
Wrapping roots enlacing the body
Green from the leaves whispers the female gaze
My gaze shouting through my whole body once
My female gaze fluid, your body rendered more than words and bones and thoughts, but a force
My female gaze fluid
As the beats the of rain sometimes skips
As the rhythms of the oceans in cosmic waltz – all the elements dance
As the sounds of the wind laugh tickling vulvas gently in the open air
Whispering new stares of the erotic from my entrails
Nature of the queered eye in spaces of the twisted

Body, body, visceral,
Flesh until hitting bone
Body, body, corporeal
Imagination until lost in the astral
